Ingredients

Directions

MAKING

Combine the cauliflower and 2 cups of water in a deep non-stick pan and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 7 to 8 minutes or till the cauliflower softens and the water has almost evaporated. Keep aside to cool slightly.

Blend the cauliflower (along with the little water remaining) in a mixer to a smooth purée and strain it using a strainer. Keep aside.

Heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan, add the wheat flour and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds or till the wheat flour turns light brown in colour.

Add the milk and cauliflower purée, mix well using a whisk till no lumps remain and bring to boil.

Add the salt and pepper powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally.

SERVING
